Toasty Toes + A Perfect Pedicure

Toasty Toes + A Perfect Pedicure

As an avid fan of pedicures, I've tried just about every kind of footwear designed to keep my toes smudge free, regardless of the time of year. In the summer, my casual flip-flops are a no-brainer, although the a/c in most salons is going full blast to combat the humid Chicago heat. That can make for some cold toes. Now, if only there was a way to keep my feet warm and my shiny coral shade untouched… Voila, there is!

Toasty Toes + A Perfect PedicureCheci Futfriends are adorable, toe-less, pink and white striped, super soft socks that keep my feet warm and stylish. And they have a celebrity following as well. For an upcoming story in O Magazine, celebrity nail guru Kimmie Kyees worked with Trista Sutter ("The Bachelorette") and Kim Kardashian ("Keeping Up with the Kardashians"), and she brought along the socks to keep Sutter and Kardashian's toes warm, cute and smudge-free (they're modeling them in the picture above). The socks are a perfect retail item for pedicure clients – they're also great to wear overnight for healing and moisturizing. Check out www.checi.com for more.
